Hairy Larry - harp, vocals, acoustic guitar Larry Donn - piano John Shepherd - electric guitar George Hinds - bass Luke Reed, drums
The rhythm tracks were all recorded in two sessions at the HairyLarryLand studio. The harp, most vocals, and most of the acoustic guitar was overdubbed on the Fostex VF-160. The album was mixed on the Fostex and mastered in SAW Classic.

Larry Donn's Kurzweil piano was recorded direct. I used a Studio Project SP1 preamp for the electric guitar and M-Audio DMP2 preamps for nearly everything else. I also used the Fostex VF160 preamps during rhythm section tracking.
Special thanks to all the musicians for helping me with this project. If you think it's rough and ready don't blame them, blame me. That's the sound I was going for. We didn't rehearse and everything is first or second take.
